I wonder how many people in States (or around the world for that matter) openly dislike gays and gay culture, but secretly love watching shows like Will & Grace, The L Word etc.

I think the opposite is more often the case. People openly like watching "Will & Grace", "The L Word", and "Queer As Folk", but secretly dislike real gays.

Very true. I guess the entertainmen industry will "win" eventually though, they always do! I'm not saying these shows are trying hard to open people's minds, but they just might help in the process.

It's not exactly exciting, although the fair amount of flesh shown on screen would make it seem so. All the sensuality is on the background, as a setting for the painfully real love/life stories. So I mostly expressed the love by laughing of (almost) crying.

I have no idea, not having watched queer as folk. I can totally recommend it, though, keeping in mind that it's a bit on the contemplative side.

So I've been though two and a half seasons, now.

This show has me completely obsessed, to the point where it's heart breaking for me to stop watching it and go on with my life, so I think I can safely say that it's been the strongest media related experience I've had in a very long time.

Weird. But deserving a bump, because I want to recommend to everyone to give it a try. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, that's for sure, but then again what is.
